Words by David H. | As told by GUNNER

I take my two cattle dogs, Sola and Steve, pretty much everywhere I go in their GUNNER Kennels.

The other day we were headed down a really curvy backroad and a car came around the corner. They came into my lane and I had to get off to the side. Right where I went off the side of the road there was a washout through big hills, and I ran right into an electrical pole head-first.

Looking back, the truck flipped ass-end over the front into a 30-40 foot ravine and somehow landed on the tires after flipping over. We drive a GMC Dually so you can imagine what it took to flip over like that.

I did not have the kennels strapped down with GUNNER tie-downs. Both kennels flew out of the truck, a tire ripped off, and my tailgate ripped off as well. It took me a while to get out of the truck since it was pretty torn up, but the first thing I did was check on the dogs.

One GUNNER kennel was thrown in front of the wreck while the other was behind. Both doors stayed shut, and the kennels barely had a scratch on them.

When I opened the doors, they started running around to play; you couldn’t even tell they were in a wreck. I at least expected them to be shaken up a bit, but they were as playful as ever.

Without the kennels, I think they would have died without a doubt.

I ordered your Medium kennels about 3 months before the wreck and still use them to this day. I researched every other kennel on the market and GUNNER was obviously the safest option. At the time of the wreck I only had a couple of normal ratchets to strap them down, which would explain them being thrown out of the truck. 

I am a lifetime customer. There isn’t much I will spend this type of money on but I am a huge believer and user. Customer service has been amazing on top of everything else. Thank y’all for protecting my pups– they are working dogs with cattle a few times throughout the year, but they’re family dogs over everything else. They mean the world to us.

"The idea for GUNNER Kennels was inspired by my own best friend, Gunner. I've always felt uneasy traveling with him in traditional plastic crates and was tired of replacing flimsy ones year after year." – Addison Edmonds, Founder
